Electronic Arts files Desert Strike trademarks

Desert Strike remake may be in the works, EA files trademark

Electronic Arts has submitted two new trademark applications for Desert Strike with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, hinting that a remake of the popular 1992 shoot ‘em up video game is in the works.

On November 25, 2013, the video game company filed the trademarks (US Serial Numbers: 86128233 and 86128236) for Desert Strike.

Desert Strike was originally released in February 1992 and involved the player piloting an AH-64 Apache helicopter.

A remake of Desert Strike may come as no surprise.  The game sold well and for its time, it was Electronic Arts’ highest ever selling game.

So far EA has made no announcement as to a remake, although, there have been many people online calling for a remake throughout the years.

On a domain note, DesertStrike.com is currently registered to Name Administration Inc. according to WHOIS records.

DesertStrike.net and other top-level domains have not been registered.
